To coincide with the re-release of Six. By Seven’s seminal second album The Closer You Get on February 17th, The Beggars Arkive commissioned director Alex Mannion-Jones to produce a documentary The Dream Is Sweeter Than The Taste. Despite their unique sound, their huge popularity in the music press, endless touring and the efforts of the label, the hype never quite broke through into mainstream success. However, Six. By Seven frontman Chris Olley has always kept the fanbase alive and developed his own ways to distribute music outside of the industry.

The original line up who made The Closer You Get have reformed to play a show in their hometown of Nottingham on 4th March (sold out) and in London at the Garage in London on 11th March 2017.

Praise for the reissues:

“The darker successors to Britpop, musically akin to the minimal guitar mantras of Spacemen 3 and Loop. Their songs harness the beauty and momentum of playing one or two chords, then socking it to you with the big change.” Mojo 4*s
“A sort of pendulum-swing away from the cheeky-chappy cheer of Britpop back toward the stoic guitar maelstroms of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth, Nottingham’s Six By Seven set out to chart a course between the dissonant and the epic.” Uncut
“Veering between Sonic Youth-style jet-engine feedback and atmospheric rock, it sounds as exhilarating as it did back then.” Q 4*s
“Six. By Seven were a fantastic band. Capable of mini-epics culminating in fearsome noise.” Louder than War 8/10
“The Closer You Get is a lost classic.” Soundblab 10/10
